Well where have I been? I haven't been around much since the last blog as I have had one hell of a time, I trapped the nerve in my shoulder which is so painful,
I cant even explain how bad the pain is, its still very sore but I am getting there slowly, well at least I can write now!!!
that's what happens when you twist very awkwardly while decorating lol and no the room isnt finished just yet , I had acupuncture and physio which is helping but been told its going to be a long process and that it may never go away, which sounds wonderful, so we will see how it goes, I must say the acupuncture is working better than the physio and I never thought that looking like a voodoo doll would help but it does, lol anyway
I promised that so much would be changing on my sites but I just cant manage that now so I will continue to put up cards for you to replicate,
I really like this card in fact i made it as a anniversary card,
I started as always with a blank card i got some milk coloured card and embossed it with the embossibility folder called hearts.I coated the folder in red brick distress ink first then layered my card over then embossed it. once the card came out i had a very delicate colour on my card, I didn't want the ink on the raised pattern I wanted it in the back ground and this is the only way to get this effect.
I stamped my sentiment on plain white card and cut out using my spellbinder die shapes a rectangle die and a oval frame to go round my words,
cut a border die out placed that at the bottom, made a bow red being the wider ribbon and polka dot ribbon to go on top ,used some hat pins on the bow, I used my cosmic shimmer glue to do my faux pearls around the edge, to finish off added some pearls swirls in black.
and that was it a very simple card which again you can adapt to an occasion,
